SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH] scsi: sr: get rid of sr global mutex
From
Date
Hi,

I was wondering if or what changes the maintainers would like me to make
in order to get this merged.

This regression was introduced back in 2010 and it recently took me just
under a week to find the root cause. The Internet Archive is digitising
hundreds of thousands of CDs, in an effort to preserve whatever is on
those CDs, and not being able to digitise more than one CD per machine
is a real pain.

My hope is that once I can massage the patch into something that can be
approved, we can also send the patch to the various stable trees.

Digging through some old email threads I also found a suggestion to move
the lock instead to the cdrom device. Would that be preferred to having
the lock per sr instance?
